Twitter, however, was not too happy about it.
Once the award was given out, the hip hop community was pretty furious, with many social media users protesting Meek’s win over artists like K. Dot, Drizzy, and Future. One Twitter user wrote, “Lol if you honestly believe that Meek Mill deserved that award over Dr Dre, Kendrick, Drake and even Future, you’re tweaking bro.” Another one wrote, “That’s disrespectful to Kendrick Lamar. That Meek Mill won best rap album over him like wow.”
It doesn’t look like Meek is going to slip through the cracks with a win this time.
Finally, another Twitter user even stated, “Meek Mill winning album of the year must be a joke… Especially after all the hate he got.” It has been a tough year for Meek in the industry, as people have not been too quick to check for new music from him since the Drake feud. At least he can still snag a win while he is on house arrest and under these difficult circumstances.
